Surgical (PR) Skill Required to Take on Medical Lobby

t's a typical lament among medical specialists operating in the thorny world of American healthcare: The Louisiana Physical Therapy Association (LPTA) wanted "direct access" -
that is, the right of patients to see physical therapists directly, without referrals from their primary care docs. Yet the mainstream medical establishment opposed direct access
for a number of reasons, mainly the fear that direct access would hurt the bottom line of primary care providers.
